Letter to Little Man's Mom








Dear Mommy,

I asked Noni to help me write this letter to you for Mother's Day.  I love you so much.  Your voice is the voice I listen for to know everything is right with the world.  Your smile is the smile that lights my life.  Your touch is the touch that comforts me when I wake in the night... when I don't feel good... when I am tired or hungry or scared. 



Your tireless love gives me everything I need to grow, to thrive, to learn, to love back.  You work so hard for me and I just want you to know I am growing to be a man you will be proud of...  Noni says I will give you back way more than you give... but, that seems like a lot.  Noni says it is true.  She says one day I will understand that.  She says you have given her more than she ever gave to you.


I don't know about that stuff right now.  What I know is that I love you bigger than the sky... to the moon and back.  Noni says she does, too.  Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

Love,

Little Man
PS Noni says she had to borrow these photos from you for today.  She said thank you.

Those eyes! *sigh* That was one of the sweetest letters I've ever read and such a precious way to honor the mother of your favorite grandbaby. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day, Tanna! I had a houseful of kids and future in-laws and a busy weekend of grilling with a dance recital job thrown in the mix. Busy but good. Have a great week!
